For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

Thanks Andy - this isn't a complete answer but...

I don't have the full "accounting answer" at the moment (and maybe that's more of an AGM answer as well, just for the membership), because I cannot recall the exact expenditures (the CWFFC and FIPS fees, along with web site hosting fees are the bulk of our expenditures, and costs have gone up), but we are trying to offer more with the membership going forward than we have in the past as well.  Articles written by international team members, etc... to provide more value to the membership as opposed to just having ranking points.  If there is any money left over at the end of the day, it can be helpful for youth and other international teams.

So yes, the fee has gone up $15 from last year for adults ($50%).  We are certain though that the value of the membership will greatly exceed the cost of it to prospective members.

(Note: edited to just add a little bit more info)

Approximately one week left to sign up for FFC.  If you are interested, please don't hesitate too long!

First week of December, the membership should see the first of FFC's articles and write ups, which shall be an article on "Nymphing Leaders" (by some guy named Chris Puchniak).
